Weekend Writing Warriors: Unicorns, Demons and Witches... RUNNING FROM SHADOWS! #8Sunday #PlayListVid

Thank you for stopping by. I'm excited to participate with such a fantastic group of writers! Check out other warriors here!

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!! Squee!! 

Follow Greta Shore (a 17-year-old, black-haired wiccan beauty) and Paxton "Pax" Craig (an 18-year-old, blond-haired college student with a dark secret) as they discover the fate of their forbidden love.
(Read last week's post) Set-up... Pax has told Greta that he's a unicorn. A unicorn!!! So, of course, Greta is all: sure, yeah, whatever... Prove it! But Pax is being stubborn, so Greta takes off for the Red Forest. Pax stops her, but will he do what she asks?

I let out a breath I hadn’t realized I’d held onto and turned toward the sound of his voice. His lips pressed into a hard line, almost as if he wanted to say something else but didn’t. “Why? You gonna shift?”


I spun away from him.

“I’ll show you my horn.”


Tune in next week for more Greta and Pax!! ;)

Thanks again for stopping by! Your support and feedback is greatly appreciated!

Because being a warrior is hard work, here's a vid from the Running From Shadows playlist to reward all you sexy, sweaty peeps ;)
